Now through March 30, the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center is hosting a biweekly Tuesday night movie series for patrons and staff to watch — and comment — on films as a group.
The curated series features films available on streaming services and WHBPAC will moderate a chat as patrons watch and comment about the film in real-time. Designed to be tech easy — and easy on the wallet — this program will educate, entertain and inspire up to 100 people a night. Donations to WHBPAC, which has been closed since March 2020 due to the pandemic, are welcome.
The next film in the series is Laura Greenfied’s “Generation Wealth,” a postcard from the edge of the American empire that captures a portrait of a materialistic, workaholic, image-obsessed culture, on March 2, at 8 p.m. Simultaneously autobiographical and historical essay, the film bears witness to the global boom-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream, and the personal costs of late-stage capitalism, narcissism and greed.
Also coming up in the series will be Matthew Akers’s “Marina Abramovic: The Artist Is Present,” a documentary that follows the artist as she prepares for what may be the most important moment of her life — a major retrospective of her work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, on March 16, followed on March 30 by “A Suitable Girl,” Sarita Khurana and Smriti Mundhra’s film that follows three young women in India struggling to maintain their identities and follow their dreams amid intense pressure to get married.
